He stood in the kitchen trying his best to avoid her. Christophé hated it when his wife nagged him about eating sweets. Well, today Mitchel made brownies, and he wasn’t about to wait for her to march in and put them under lock and key.
Christophé was halfway through his fourth when Kerowyné’s head popped through the doorway.
“You’re not supposed to be eating those,” she chided. “Especially, since Grandma thinks they’re the reason, you have high blood pressure.”
He rolled his eyes. Trust me you little pest you and your brothers are the reason for that. “Why don’t you stop whining and get over here and have some.”
That shut her up. She strides over without a word and they both enjoyed the tasty brownies in silence. That was till he heard it. The huff, the deadliest noise that could bring a man to his knees. He turned around and his worse nightmare was standing in the doorway.
“We’re dead,” Kerowyné mumbled mid bite.
He couldn’t help but agree with her as he tried to swallow the chunk lodged in his throat. They always taste so delicious but this one tasted like ash going down.
“Well,” Roseanne came. “What are you two doing?”
“Nothing.” Christophé lowered his eyes and gave an innocent smirk hoping to soften the bear before she attacked.
“I caught Grandpa eating the brownies,” Kerowyné yelped. “He told me I could have some.”
He turned on Kerowyné and gave her the coldest glare. How dare that little brat throw me to the wolf!
“It doesn’t matter if your Grandfather gave you permission,” Roseanne said. “You both got caught with the brownies and both of you will suffer the consequences.”
He didn’t like the look that went over his wife’s face. Damn, another night of nagging.
